It is in this context that the model of Yeezy 500 was born. In 2017, the trend was at Chunky Sneaker. Also called Dad Shoe, this fashion is that of sneakers and wide shoes from the 90s worn by American "dads". Kanye West is greatly inspired by this wave to imagine the silhouettes of the Yeezy 700 and the 500, which will try to compete with the flagship models of Nike.
